Welcome to Banana Moon Day Nursery Colchester

Welcome to our nursery. We both have young children of our own, and we understand the peace of mind it brings when you know your children are being cared for in a safe, secure and caring environment. This is what we believe we have at Banana Moon. Our Senior Manager, Tash, has had both of her sons here and has been our manager since the day we opened. We like to pride ourselves on the quality of our staff and the fact that they regularly undertake training courses to keep abreast of changes in the childcare sector. Our staff are professional, caring and proactive when encouraging the children to achieve their potential, while following the EYFS structure. We believe an important role is promoting the social skills that come from these activities, as these will help the children gain self confidence for when they start school. We would be delighted to have the opportunity to show you our nursery, so that you can meet our staff and judge for yourself whether this is the nursery that will provide your child with the best start to their journey.

As a parent, I am very pleased with Banana Moon Day Nursery. I find the Management team very welcoming and helpful. There were moments where I needed to add/modify some days in my son's diary and they were extremely helpful. My son enjoys going there, he loves his key person and the other members of  staff that are in his room. I like that fact I can see my son's daily activities and meals through the app any time as well as his golden moments. I feel I can trust them; I know my son is in good hands.

I'm so pleased that I chose Banana Moon for my daughter. After viewing a few, I instantly knew that I'd made the right choice when I met the team at Banana Moon. Every member of staff at Banana Moon seems to really love their job and are so good with my daughter. She's learnt so much since being there,  she's only 18 months and is already counting to 10. I also love the varied choice of food. She has a range of healthy home-cooked meals and gets to tried lots of different cuisines that I would probably not cook at home. They also have a great outdoor space, which I did not expect for a town centre nursery, so this was definitely a plus! I highly recommend Banana Moon to everyone.

I can’t praise this nursery anymore if I tried. I was that mum that viewed every single nursery possible and hated every single one of them until I viewed this one, myself and my son felt comfortable straight away. As soon as the viewing was over I couldn’t wait to ask when my son can start. The staff are so lovely, the food they serve the children is all home-cooked and they teach the children so much (even Spanish). I also love that they have a little app so you can see what the children are up to throughout the day. I would recommend this nursery to anyone with small children.
